cruise to the semi-finals & finals

Postby KarenS » Thu Apr 12, 2007 7:37 am

Cricket enthusiasts have been given the opportunity to follow the CWC games while enjoying the luxuries of a Caribbean cruise.

Calling it a ‚Äúonce in a lifetime opportunity‚ÄĚ for Caribbean residents, President of Antigua & Barbuda‚Äôs Cruise Tourism Association Nathan Dundas revealed yesterday that the government of Barbados, in collaboration with the Carnival Destiny has embarked on an initiative whereby fans will have the opportunity of catching the CWC semi-finals in St. Lucia and the finals in Barbados.

The Carnival Destiny which calls to Antigua weekly ‚Äď on Fridays ‚Äď has been chartered by the government of Barbados to handle the accommodation needs that were anticipated for the CWC. Dundas explained that since the projected numbers fell significantly short of target, countries which had commissioned the cruise lines as accommodations also suffered considerable loss as they were unable to achieve their desired results. Hence, the joint venture between the cruise line and Barbados. Dundas added that who added that after first taking a flight to Barbados, ‚ÄúFans will be able to journey between Barbados and St. Lucia by means of the ship sailing between those two ports.
